    I'll know a woman loves me when she slashes my tires, and burns all my stuff in the front yard.

    Never once did he take any personal responsibility for any
    problems in our relationship. The closest he got was not
    denying something, once. Once! And he was never going
    to do it again, but he always did... until I walked away, for good.

    For the most part, I've become content with singleness... I have bouts of really wanting to find someone, but over the years, taking care of other singles (such as, by trying to give them topics to share, discuss, and troubleshoot in this forum) has become more important to me than dating (which wasn't seeming to go anywhere anyway), but maybe someday, I'll meet someone who changes that.

    (I still hold out a secret hope.)
    The thing about being Christ's bride isn't knowing about who you are, but whose you are. You are His. He took you as His in the very beginning just as you were, mistakes, sins, fears, & everything. He did this because of His great love for you. He knew what He was getting all along. It's never been about what you are, but who you could be under His wings. God wants you to trust Him with all your imperfections & let Him mold you into the image that pleases Him. Accept His proposal, follow Him in the ministry He's tailor-made just for you.

    Two scriptures for you:

    Eph 3:14For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, 16that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. 20Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.

    Believe that. Go for it. You have nothing to lose.

    Matt 6:31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’32For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.33
    But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

    I hope this blesses you.

    He was a musician When the neighbors called the cops because they thought I was being murdered, according to him, it was all my fault because I made noise when he repeatedly whaled on me. Thanks, Tommy. That was a long time ago. But we don't forget. Why would I? I learned some good lessons there. School of hard knocks

    Often times in told I'm different from other guys, without trying to do so. I've always just wanted a genuine relationship. And that's the way I act. But once I find that there are negative expectations from previous relationships I will make reasonable efforts to not cross those boundaries and take extra steps to prove myself. For me it's a no brainer.
    Then again I also don't go on casual dates. So by the time this comes out I'm already invested to some degree.

    I tend not to expect anyone to prove themselves different anymore. Because I don't expect different. The nice thing was SillyChick WAS different. And, like me, despite being different just being herself, she would make a point to prove she was different as well.
    It really worked out being very well balanced and each of us felt a lot of security with one another as a result.

    Makes me miss her all over again.

    I have been told " I thought you were different than other women, but I was wrong" but it doesn't bother me cause it was from a guy who was pretending to be a Christian to get in good with me. When he started talking about fantasizing about what he would do to me in the bathtub and I put a stop to it the mask fell off and I became like "all the other girls"

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    I have nothing to add to this thread but to say I am interested in the replies y'all are posting.

    If I had to prove to some girl I'm not like all the rest of the guys, I have no idea if I would prove it or just walk away. It would depend on the girl and it would depend on her concept of what "the rest of the guys" are like. But if she had some expectation that I had to either pass or fail, it would be better to tell me about it than to secretly watch me and then make a big scene when (in her mind) I failed whatever test she had. A relationship with secret expectations is like walking through a minefield.

    Found her. Unfortunately she's going out with Black Hat Guy.

    "Pick you up at eight?" "Nine. I have to remine the driveway."


    Last I heard, they went on a road trip.
